food for fish
In my tank I have a common pleco, 2 red eyes, 1 bala shark, and 2 guppies. Can I put peas in the tank for the placo without harming any of the other fish?

Yes you can, just don't leave the fresh food in too long, so it does not 'spoil' the water (2 to 4 hours is alright, then removed the uneaten food.

Hi Fishman. Peas are great laxatives for many fish. They can be a great food for 'problem eaters'. Very good for curing or at least alleviating internal blockages & other gastro-intestinal problems.
Cheap too !! The frozen ones sink.
